Clean, immaculate apartment in beautiful gardens

  • 5 of 5

We have had a lovely weekend staying at Pipers Howe for our 30th Wedding Anniversary in an apartment which has fixtures and fittings which are luxurious and comfortable. The apartment is conveniently situated for Lake Windermere by car and we were able to organise a local taxi to collect us and return us to the property at a cost of £10.00 each way when we went out for a meal and drinks at The Boathouse. We would certainly look to stay here again and have no hesitation in recommending to others wanting to stay somewhere quiet and private.

Superb apartment

  • 5 of 5

Pleased to say it was easy to find ,the narrow lane concerned me (soon got used to it) and was everything I'd hoped it to be and more

So peaceful and lovely view and very pretty gardens we were welcome to use

Had a lovely welcome from Carmen who explained everything expertly and told us they were available if we needed them

It has a lovely sitting/dining /kitchen with beautiful furnishings and large TV .The bedroom is spacious with lovely bathroom and gorgeous large shower

Everything is first class and high standard Felt so relaxed here and ideal for visiting area For the more fitter person you can walk into Windermere a taxi back for sure .

There's such a wealth of information provided and comfort it is one if the best holiday accommodations we have stayed in Would like to think we will return Thank you Carmen and Rob

Short break holiday

  • 5 of 5

This little gem of an apartment is ideal for a couple to get away from it all. It's situated in a quiet part of Windermere with easy acces to all parts of the lakes.

The apartment is extremely comfortable and decorated to a very high standard.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much.

Perfect holiday base

  • 5 of 5

Arrived in the pitch dark and Carmen was waiting to welcome us. The apartment was lovely and cosy, very comfortable, with good quality finishes. Carmen and Bob made us very welcome then left us to enjoy our break while still on hand if we needed anything. The apartment is in an ideal location - peaceful but very convenient for Windermere and beyond. Views are fantastic. Hope to return
